Welcome to my Website

I have lived in New Zealand’s beautiful farming country all my life. This rural lifestyle provides a rich source of settings and inspiration for my stories.

I write romance because I love delving into human relationships. It is these relationships in all their diversity that make the human race so fascinating. I’ve been asked why Romance and my answer is always: I write romance because to me first and last, family matters.

A brand new rural romance trilogy from a brand new voice: Shirley Wine introduces you to the secrets and scandals of Darkhaven

For single mum, Victoria Scanlan, a visit to the luxurious country house of Darkhaven, is a rare chance to combine work with pleasure. Securing the commission for The Wedding Of The Year will guarantee the ongoing success of her floral boutique and secure her the stability she needs for both herself and her son.

But Darkhaven comes with a shocking guest – the groom is Seth Donahue. Her young son’s father. The man who has no idea he has a child. The man she can’t forget.

After a lifetime of betrayal by every woman in his life, Keir Donovan has settled on a calm future with the glamorous heiress Davina Strathmore. She is everything Keir needs in a life partner: confident, poised, elegant, attractive, and aware that this marriage isn’t about love. But when Victoria walks back in his life, his future suddenly doesn’t seem quite so well-defined.

Keir’s passion for Victoria still burns as strongly as ever, but it’s clear she’s keeping secrets: and after a lifetime of deception, Keir has no tolerance for lies.

Book 2: Ask Me No Questions  is due for release in June 2016
